I just come across a post on New World Notes (Link) mentioning a competition I like: a virtual architecture competition with a $5000 EURO prize.
Meltemi Editore, a publishing house based in Rome, is sponsoring a contest to design their SL office…
First submission deadline is May 20. Winning design team comes away with 5000 Euros– about $6762, or L$1,818,978.
Imagine that. A publishing house able to offer a prize that even the mighty Coca-Cola corporation doesn’t seem able to match (reLink). How embarrassing (though I’m not kidding myself into believing the people at Coca-Cola actually give a damn). If I didn’t know better, I’d venture that the Italians actually care about their product, while Coca-Cola… well, their competition speaks for itself.
For those interested, the architecture competition rules and guidelines are available online (Link). I wish I had time to be of help, but the best I can do is answer any questions people unfamiliar with Second Life might have (and I’m still a little rusty from my absence much of last year).
